[ntdev]Win2000 Suspend Resume issue.

RamkumarRamkumar Member Posts: 5
Hi All,

I'm developing a USB Win2k driver for a device that should
support remote wake up.

What I observed in Win2k on ACPI machines is as follows.

After the machine enters the suspend state, it could be waken up ONLY by
pressing the System's power button. Clicking the mouse or hitting any key in the
keyboard does not resume back the host machine. I tried all the combinations in
the BIOS settings, but with no luck.

Whereas in Win98, the system can be waken up by moving the mouse or
pressing any key.

I would like to know if the host system can be woken up by mouse,
keyboard etc. when the host is suspended, under Win2k (Build 2195).

Any help will be greatly appreciated.
